phundy pharmacists phreeking phuckheads
I'm sitting in a cafe and have this exact article from yesterday's The Seattle Times tree-killer edition sitting next to the laptop.
This is not about women's rights, abortion, professional responsibility, moral values, or religious beliefs.
It's about being stupid.
Suing because you don't want to administer plan B? And you're a pharmacist? Like I have said before, I personally think the correct response is "you're fired," but read this single sentence and tell me what I'm missing:
Some critics consider the pill related to abortion, although it is different from the abortion pill RU-486 and
has no effect on women who already are pregnant.
(Oh, I guess I need to say, emphasis mine.)
Maybe if we let these fundy pharmacists label the pills, "you had sex with the full intention of enjoying yourself rather than making a baby, you naughty naughty girl, here's a painful period to PUNISH you" pill, that would satisfy their "deeply held religious and moral beliefs". I doubt it.
I gotta say this too: as much as I admire a great many feminist blogs, this ain't one. I simply cast my net wider, is all.
Searching this blog for the word "misogynist" brings up a blank. Until now.
You pharmacists are not being anti-abortion. You're being phucking misogynists. Find another profession.
